Let’s see what happens, as President Donald Trump would say.

On Thursday night Sean Hannity, host of the popular “Hannity” weeknight program on Fox News, made an offer to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

The question is now: Is it an offer she can’t refuse?

Hannity declared that if the newly minted Democratic congresswoman from New York would say yes to appearing on his evening news program, he’d devote a full hour to a conversation with her on the air.

“I’m going to extend tonight an offer to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Hannity said on Thursday night. “I want to give you an hour invitation to come on this show to have a discussion.”

The Fox News host also offered her up to three hours of time on his radio program.

“We get a lot of criticism on this program. We’ll talk. We’ll have a conversation. Hope you’ll join us,” Hannity added.

The Democratic socialist lawmaker recently has butted heads with her own speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

See exactly what Hannity said on his program:

Ocasio-Cortez has floated the notion that the speaker is singling her out, as well as three other lawmakers she’s aligned with on a number of policy initiatives and goals.

In an interview last week with New Yorker Radio, Ocasio-Cortez described an exchange she and the speaker had, during which the freshman congresswoman declined a seat offered to her on a climate change committee.

Following that incident, AOC apparently was put to work.

“I was assigned to two of … the busiest committees and four subcommittees,” she said after snubbing the climate change offer. “So my hands are full. And sometimes I wonder if they’re trying to keep me busy,” Ocasio-Cortez groused.

Pelosi actually mocked Ocasio-Cortez and her merry band of unhinged leftists, Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), this past weekend.

Pelosi was asked if she regrets making fun of the congressional newbies — to which she responded, “No. I have no regrets about anything.”

“They didn’t have any following,” Pelosi scoffed after the group voted against a bipartisan border funding bill. “They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following,” the speaker added.

Pelosi was asked if she regrets making fun of the congressional newbies — to which she responded, “No. I have no regrets about anything.”

Aside from all of that, Ocasio-Cortez is behind the controversial Green New Deal, among other highly questionable and wildly expensive proposals from progressives in the Democrat Party.
